Model 41 grips

Post by Boxturtle on Wed Mar 21, 2018 9:39 am

There has been discussion of this topic, but I'm not sure how to search for the threads.  Are there grips available for the Model 41 that have the same shape as a standard Model 1911 grip with straight main spring housing (this condition added after Chris's response)?

I have a set of the trainer grips that I am willing to sell.  They have been modified slightly.  Someone did a nice job of checkering the backstrap part of the grips.  Also, a warning, you may need to put a small piece of tape on the head end of your grip screws so they do not stick out too far on the right side when you install them.  These grips are thinner than the regular Model 41 grips.  Anyway, $50 delivered to you.  If interested, send me a pm and I can send you a photo of them.

Perhaps I am not understanding your question, but I have the CMM 1911 conversion grips on one of my 41s, and find them superior (for me) of any of the other grips I could find, including the Herretts Trainers. I have medium size hands, and the CMM grips are a little smaller  due to the "1911" contour. Not positive I understand the question re: straight main spring housing, but pretty sure they are ( at least compared to another 1911 I have). I'd call CMM if that was the big issue.  Nice thing about the CMM conversion is that any 1911 grip will then fit, and there are hundreds to choose from.

I have a set of Rink orthopedic grips on order, they are my overall favorites, they allow sufficient alternatives in the ordering process for me to get precisely what I like.

CMM 1911 conversion adaptor is a very interesting product.  Thank you for bringing it to my attention.  BTW, yes, they offer curved and straight MSH versions.

Looks like CMM offers two different grip conversions to emulate either the arched or straight main spring housing.

I don't see them listed anywhere but Herrett made an arched mainspring version of their Trainer grip at one time

It's hard to find stuff on the Herrett's web site, but they also offer a straight MSH grip, here:

Here is the arched model.

I think each is $51 + S&H.

I guess Herrett's doesn't update their information very often.  The old price is still there, although I'm sure the new price is also.  Thanks for the update.

I tried a set of Herrett Trainers once.  If your hand is wide like mine, you probably will find the grips too short.

Hogue, I believe, makes a nice set of straight stocks.
